Most Americans say their view of Obamacare will play a role in how they vote in upcoming congressional electionsbut don't count on that guaranteeing that a particular political party is slam dunk winner this fall.
A new Bankrate.com poll released Wednesday revealed that Obamacare-motivated voters are not necessarily heavily Republican or Democratic. It also revealed sharply decreasing support for outright repeal of the still-controversial health-care reform law.
Most of those people, 44 percent of all respondents, said the health-care law would be a major factor in their decision, while 24 percent said it would play a minor role.
Out of the people who said it would play any kind of a role, 32 percent of the respondents said Obamacare will make them more likely to vote for Republicans, whose party is overwhelmingly opposed to the law. According to the poll, 26 percent of the respondents said they will be more likely to vote for a Democratic congressional candidate because of how they view the law.

NBC hoping and hoping.
Were this a 6pct swing the other way you know damn well the obama lobbyists at NBC would be trumpeting this as a huge victory for the rats...
There are idiots out there that have stickers on their car saying how they love obamacare.
But the lady who drives the car, has health insurance through her employer and her husband is in the military.
So how in the hell would this person know anything about obamacare?
Also, the slip in the support to repeal is a reflection of the genus of shutting down the government to prevent it’s implementation. The issue is, people are perceiving repealing it as impossible.
translation: We hate it for all the right reasons. The other half hates it because it isn’t Socialist enough.
How soon we forget or not. Obama made all of the mandates to become law after the election.That was why he had so many waivers. Remember?
Yes, and he waivered the employer mandate until after this year’s election.
Obamacare may change a few votes but most Dems will still vote Dem. More likely, many who are dissatisfied will just stay home.
